Nainggolan speaks while on international duty

Roma’s Radja Nainggolan spoke with Neerpede while on duty with the Belgian national team:

“I want to prove that I’m capable of playing in a more offensive position even though I am basically a defensive midfielder. But with Roma, I play more freely in the midfield. Now (with Roma), I have more responsibilities both on and off the field. We have a team that hopes to win a trophy at the end of the season. The national team? I hope to have a chance, of course, everybody wants to play and I’m ready, but it’s up to the coach to decide.”
